It’s nearing the end of the year- but there is still plenty of great stuff coming up on streaming to enjoy while laying in a warm blanket on the sofa. From the newest season of one of Netflix’s biggest shows, to a new nostalgic sitcom, and the return of a beloved Disney sort-of princess, November’s got a lot to offer – so read on.

The Crown

One of the biggest shows on Netflix finally makes its return this month: the long awaited fifth season of The Crown, which has been in development for two years, will drop on Netflix on 7th November. This new season comes with a brand new cast, including Imelda Staunton as the late Queen Elizabeth, Johnathan Pryce as Prince Phillip, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Johnny Lee Miller as Prime Minister John Major, and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret. Following the events of Season 4, the new season will move into the 1990s, and explore one perhaps the most difficult decade of the Queen’s reign. Expect plenty more of the Diana-Charles split, and the exploration of the Queen’s “annus horribillis” in 1992.

The English

Westerns and Emily Blunt are two things that aren’t normally on the BBC – but both are being combined for a brand new series in November in the Western period drama The English. With high profile names and eye catching scenery, it looks like it could be one of the highest quality productions in BBC history. The English is an international co-production, set to premiere on both Amazon Prime in the US and BBC Two in the UK. Blunt is set to take a starring role as main character Cornelia Locke, an Englishwoman who travels to the West in the 1890s, seeking revenge on a man she believes to be responsible for the death of her son. While there, she meets a ex-cavalry scout, and member of the Central Plains Indian Tribe Pawnee Nation, whom she discovers she may have a shared history with.

Wednesday

Beloved macabre series The Addams Family is getting a new reboot – with this one focusing on Wednesday Addams, the only daughter in the family and one of the franchise’s most perennially popular characters. Wednesday is in the works over at Netflix, and stars Jenna Ortega as the titular death-obsessed daughter, and is directed by Tim Burton. The show sees up-and-coming actress Jenna Ortega step into the bleak shoes of Wednesday to lead the series as its main character. Luis Guzman stars as Gomez, Isaac Ordonez plays Pugsley, Victor Dorobantu plays Thing, George Burcea plays Lurch, and Catherine Zeta-Jones will play the family matriarch Morticia. Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday in the 90s film versions, will return playing a new role for the series.

Disenchanted

It’s been a long time coming, but the sequel to 2007’s Enchanted, starring Amy Adams, is finally arriving this November. Set ten years after the original film, Disenchanted sees heroine Giselle (Adams) return after her happily ever after, with Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and Giselle’s stepdaughter Morgan (Gabriella Baldacchino). When the trio move out of their house in Manhattan to the suburbs, they soon run into problems, and Giselle decides to fix things with her magic wand. Things go wrong though, with the spell backfiring with disastrous consequences- forcing Giselle to try and save her family and homeland before midnight. James Marsden and Idina Menzel also return, joined by newcomers Maya Rudolph, Jayma Mays, Yyvette Nicole Brown and Griffin Newman.

The White Lotus

Comedy-drama series The White Lotus was a smash hit when the first season released back in 2021, and so a season 2 was inevitable. While the first season was set in Hawaii (and was called The White Lotus: Hawaii), the second is set in Sicily. The White Lotus: Sicily starts on Sunday 30th October, but the rest of the season will unfold across November. Jennifer Coolidge is the only major cast member from the first season to return, reprising her role as socialiate Tanya McQuoid. Some of the new cast include the Di Grassos, a family of Italian Americans who arrive in Sicily to see their ancestral homeland, played by The Sopranos actor Michael Imperioli, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham and The Order’s Adam DiMarco, and other names including Aubrey Plaza, who’s starring as Harper Spiller, Will Sharp as Ethan Spiller, Tom Hollander as Quentin, and Theo James as Cameron Babcock.

Pepsi: Where’s My Jet?

If documentaries are your thing, you may want to check out Netflix’s latest based on a particularly odd story from the 1990s. Having constantly trailed Coke in the battle of soft drinks, Pepsi decided in 1996 to go on an advertising blitz that centred around using labels from Pepsi’s products as Pepsi points to claim free items, like glasses, jackets, and other goodies. The company decided to up the ante, stating that for a cool seven million Pepsi points (or $700,000 in spending), you could win a $20 million dollar fighter jet. No-one believed getting that many points was feasible – but two college students decided to find out for themselves, and when they asked for a fighter jet upon gathering the necessary points, Pepsi refused to give them a jet, resulting in a legal battle. You can watch how it all unfolded when the doc arrives on 8th November.
